    got to say lava grey is one of the best colours, it shows in different colours in different weathers, but the best colour is when its sunny and it looks like dark purple,

    Ye i love it

    I think that's why my wheels work so well with the car because they change colour too

    One of my mates asked me why my car was brown at the weekend :laugh: just the sunlight makes it change so many colours

    Cheers N8

    Thanks mate, the bumper change is a bit of a faff in all honesty, getting the washer jets and everything done. All credit to NHN once again, don't know where i'd be without him

    The lava grey changes colour ALL the time

    Sometimes it even goes a sort of metallic bronze colour in dull light, and then a purple tint in bright sunlight - i love it

    Just a simple wash with some Megular's shampoo, 2 bucket method

    Then on the day i went over her with a microfibre to get any dirt off, and then over it again with Megular's quick detailing spray - nothing special

    I decided to go for the stealth look, so "darth vader" fits the bill perfectly :)
